Tulasi Pooja Pictures – 2014

It has been a very hectic few months for me with all the travel and work. It was just this Monday and Tuesday i.e. today that I have worked from home. I will be traveling to Bangalore, India for work on Thursday. Work is for two weeks, take a few days off to spend time with Parents and relatives and back here to USA in time for Thanksgiving so I can be with my Daughter for a few days.

During this short visit for Work, I am also planning to visit Mantralaya and see our beloved Rayaru. I will definitely keep you all posted if I do visit and see our beloved Rayaru.

I am also going to visit Mysore to see my Grandmother (Ajji), Uncles and Aunts. Hopefully, I will have a few hours to record at least a few devotional songs from Ajji and my Aunts. They sing amazing devotional songs. 🙂

Might not update the blog regularly, so please bear with me until end of November.

Today being ತುಲಸೀ ಹಬ್ಬವಿವಾಹ ಉತ್ವಾನ ದ್ವಾದಶಿ – Uthwana Dwadashi/Tulasi Habba, we performed the pooje in the evening. It is getting very cold here in the US, and so we had to bring all the plants indoor, including the Tulasi plants. Rather than keeping the Tulasi plant in the Pooja Room, I decided to do the pooje in the Sun room it self. Attached below are pictures of the same.

For dinner, I made Kosambari, Shavige(Semia) Payasa, and Vegetable rice.

  3. ध्यायामि तुळसीं देवीं श्यामां कमल लोचनाम् । प्रसन्नां पद्मकल्हार वरदाञ्च चतुर्भुजाम् ।। किरीट हार केयूर कुण्डलाद्यै र्विभूषिताम् । धवलांशुक संवीतां पद्मासन निषेविताम् ।। देवीं त्रैलोक्य जननीं सर्व लोकैक पावनीम् । अस्मिन् तुळसीगुल्मे श्री तुळसीदेवीं ध्यायामि ।।

      Thanks, Shanthi. Yes, the banana plants, jasmine, roses, and a few others will not tolerate the harsh cold outside.

    Very beautiful, as usual. You always perform all the pujas so elaborately and with so much devotion, that it shows in the pictures you post.
    Btw, I’m in Hyderabad now, so please feel free to contact me if you are in the vicinity. It would be an absolute privilege to meet you.
    Have a safe trip…
